The title of Virgil Moore's book, Demon Vampire, might turn you off. The cover of his book might turn you off. Or they could be intriguing to you and be the reason you want to purchase the book. Either way Mr. Moore is successful in this paranormal/horror book.

First of all, this is a paranormal story involving vampires and such creatures. I have to admit that these books are starting to not draw me in as much anymore because there are so many of them. I haven't read a ton of them, but of the vampire stories I've read, this is not one to fall in the copy-cat boring category. Mr. Moore gives a new twist to a story of vampires.

Next, I consider this a horror story. I have friends who like horror and might laugh that I describe it as such since they read ones that would give me nightmares from being within touching distance of the book. Yet I call this a horror story because it gave me nightmares. That right there convinced quite a few people they have to read this book. I might to agree with that.

Though I view this story as a horror story, I have to admit I enjoyed. Horror usually is a strike 'no' for me. This one was not over the top scary which is a plus for me. It takes unusual twists and turns that keep the story fresh and the reader guessing. That is one of the strongest points of Mr. Moore's work. The plot is very intricate and far from simple which is what I like. This on the other hand, made it difficult for me to follow in the beginning. I was very confused and was wondering if any of it would make sense. Yet the more I read the more I grew to understand and appreciate the writer's style.

I did find quite a few editing issues within the book but not enough to detract you from the story. At times, the dialogue seems a little unreal, but we are talking demon vampires here. They are unreal themselves.

Do you like paranormal stories? Do you like to read unique twists on vampires? Do you like mildly horror stories? Do you enjoy complicated stories and plots? Then you have to check this book out. I wanted to stop reading it because of the horror characteristics yet I had to know what was going to happen to this young man who was finding out that his 'ordinary' life is far from ordinary. Mr. Moore has done a great job of giving me a few sleepless nights.
